I think that if a nonastringent Kaki loses leaves to deer, that only 
verifies Lon's notion that the astringency in persimmon fruit is also in the 
leaves.  This implies that one could screen persimmon seedlings for 
astringency by tasting leaves.  Or you could bring in a goat... the trees it 
ate were the ones you wanted to keep.    Donna
